25 weeks and pass the potato chips.

 I think updating baby 3.0s progress and my belly every 5 weeks is acceptable. Unless you're following me on Instagram, you're all up to date on my belly and have seen more pictures that you probably care to!!! ha
Half the time I've forgotten I have a blog and the other half of the time I'm too busy raising kids eating the house down.

Weeks: 25.5

Cravings:  Pretty much anything that's in front of my face.
 :::blank stare:::
for real. I can't stop eating. That means he is growing, right???

Food Aversions: Nothing, dang it!

Heartbeat: high 150's

Gender: precious baby BOY!

Extras: Still feeling good. Lots of pressure. ahem.. like feeling like I could push this baby out. All is good though, I've been checked out and we're good. I'm tired but what's new? I love food, trying hard to work out daily which is pure entertainment for my husband I'm sure. I'm up a total of 10 pounds since getting pregnant. And to be honest, I feel like someone is packing my face like a fat suit. I still fit in regular clothes but my face is playing chubby bunny on me. Whatever, it's all for a good cause. {i tell myself that 13 times a day}

How big is baby 3.0?  Mason James is now about 13.5 inches long and weighs about 1.5 pounds. {see, all 10 pounds aren't mine!!} My belly still feels like it's on the smaller side but he is measuring on track and I definitely feel pregnant. 15 more weeks baby boy! But hopefully it's more like 13-14 more!

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
